CHRISTmas Lights. The gift of GOD’S LOVE in us can bring light to any darkness. 

JESUS. “I.AM. the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

Each year for several weeks around CHRISTmas, Singapore’s tourist belt, Orchard Road, is transformed into a wonderland of lights and colors. This light-up is designed to attract tourists to spend their money at the many stores along the street during this “golden month of business.” Shoppers come to enjoy the festivities, listen to choirs sing familiar CHRISTmas carols, and watch performers entertain.

The first CHRISTmas “light-up” ever was not created by electrical cables, glitter, and neon lights but by “the glory of the LORD [that] shone around” (Luke 2:9). No tourists saw it, just a few simple shepherds out in their field. And it was followed by an unexpected rendition of “Glory to GOD in the Highest” by an angelic choir (v. 14).

LORD, help me this CHRISTmas to reflect the light of Your presence and goodness to others.

The shepherds went to Bethlehem to see if what the angels said was true (v. 15). After they had confirmed it, they could not keep to themselves what they had heard and seen. “When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child” (v. 17).

Many of us have heard the CHRISTmas story often. This CHRISTmas, why not share the good news with others that CHRIST—“the light of the world”—has come (John 8:12).

LORD, help me this CHRISTmas to reflect the light of Your presence and goodness to others.

INSIGHT:

The gospel records fall into two categories: the Synoptic gospels and the gospel of John. The “Synoptics” (which means “with a common view”) are Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Although they offer varying details to help them tell the story of JESUS in a unique way, they still have a common perspective because they often tell the same stories. John’s gospel is very distinct from the synoptics, with 92 percent unique material. One distinctive of John’s gospel is the emphasis on the themes of light and truth. John expresses the reality that JESUS is the embodiment of truth and light.
